Friday, August 18, 2017 – Snarky Friday Football

Friday, August 18, 2017 – Snarky Friday Football

Before the Snark enters, let us all take a moment to send our thoughts and prayers to the people of Spain. Not to exclude any group, but please watch over the Texas Aggie Women’s basketball team and all of the other teams visiting Europe.

And now appearing in regal snarkiness, here is The Snark to dish on college football.

I can’t wait for the Ugliest Uniforms for the Week Award this year. Here is putting Mississippi State on notice that the Aggies will be wearing color changing uniforms. That’s right. It is some kind of weird threads that the Adidas people dreamed up that allegedly changes from maroon to black and then glows depending on the stadium lights. I hope this works better than last year’s attempt to make the numbers glow and no one, including the broadcasters could see the numbers.

But we are still 25 days away from some of the first kick offs. I am happy the Sam Houston Bearkats open their season this month. SHSU is ranked #3 behind James Madison and North Dakota in that division’s polls. JM and ND have combined to the win the last National Championships. Go Kats! Beat the hell out of the Richmond, Spiders. Yes, the mascot of Richmond is a spider.

Let The Snark provide a summer summary of players. Here is what has happened during college football thus far this summer. He:

Transferred to:

  • A Junior College
  • Another school to go to graduate school
  • The county jail.

He hurt his:

Leg, knee, foot, shoulder, toe etc.

He was picked up for:

  • DUI
  • Passed out in flower bed in bar district
  • Assault
  • Assault and battery
  • Assault with a battery
  • Theft
  • Drug use
  • Drug possession
  • Illegal weapon possession
  • Being stupid and throwing away opportunities!

My apologies that The Snark only has time to cover the summary of the players from Florida schools. Roll Tide over Florida State. BOOM! And Snark out!

Thursday, August 4, 2016 – Not the Only One Ready for Football

Thursday, August 4, 2016

I guess I am not the only one ready for some college football. Loved all of the snarky responses yesterday. Here are my responses to your responses:

Stephen F. Austin State – Alma mater to degree # 1. Ax ‘Em Jacks. “Oh future bright, neath the purple and white, all hail to SFA…”

Ax'Em Jacks!

Sam Houston State Bear Kats –Alma mater to degree # 2. All SHSU sports are covered by the TV channels in Bryan – so cool. Teach me some cheers, Telisha.

Northwestern – go DEFENSE! Cousin Darryl (but not my other Cousin Darryl) is Defensive Coordinator. Go Demons! But not against SFA or Sam Houston!

Texas Tech – I shall anxiously await my case of tortillas. Will they be arriving by Fed Ex or a TT EX on a horse? Please know I will throw them at the TV when TT plays OU and those other schools like Kansas and Iowa State that really need to concentrate on basketball.  Go Kliff!

Alabama – I hope my readership does not fall off either, JH. I was under the impression that the four from Alabama and/or who support the Tide and who actually read HWIT represented the entire literacy of the state. Just to clarify you know I will yell “Roll Tide” when you meet Auburn, South Carolina (or any school coached by Uncle Will “Exploding Head” Muschamp), any school from Florida and any team that Bama plays that will help Texas A&M look better in the SEC West. Also, should Larry Culpepper be hawking Dr. Peppers as Alabama prepares for another National Championship in January, I will put Roll Tide on my banner.

Texas A&M – Alma mater to degree #3. Being an equal opportunity Snark my Aggies get an entire post tomorrow. Some Bad Bull.

Wednesday, August 3, 2016 – ONE MONTH FROM TODAY – College Football Weekend Kicks Off! I cannot wait! The Tide Rolled into my Computer

Wednesday, August 3, 2016 – ONE MONTH FROM TODAY – College Football Weekend Kicks Off! I cannot wait! The Tide Rolled into my Computer

If you have followed Here’s What I’m Thinking or read the descriptor you know is reads:

Short paragraphs about whatever I am thinking. I like to think about my favorite topics: College football, the state of Texas, the public school educational institution, politics and life in general.

Refining that somewhat further, I write about Texas Aggie Football. In addition I write about teams I like and teams that play teams I like. This includes, but is not limited to, LSU, selected schools in the Southeast Conference, and any team playing any football team from Florida.

I like teams from the Big Please Come to My Party Conference, formerly known as The Big XII. But I only like these schools Baylor, THE University of Texas, and Oklahoma State University.

And I root for the Lumberjacks of Stephen F. Austin in Nacogdoches and Northwestern in Naco’s brother’s founded town of Natchitoches. And I root for the Bear Kats from Sam Houston State.

First though – you Crimson Rolling Tide bunch of hackers – When I wrote in January of 2016 “Happy Birthday to us all. Roll Tide”, it was to cheer for the National NCAA Division I Football Championship. Somehow it became part of the banner.

It was not supposed to stay up there until July 4 – when I first realized it was still in banner – just above the 12th Man. When I inquired from one of Tide Rollers, as to how long it had been there, I was informed “months” making my horror and shame deepen. They continued “We wondered when you would find it.” Then it took a month to figure how to remove it. Do not expect to see Roll Tide on the HWIT Banner unless it is for another National Championship.

It did not begin with The Aggies. Until I was about ten years old I thought that that one graduated from high school and then went to LSU.

This is because my first football hero who actually got the beautiful girl too is my cousin, Donnie Daye  and his beautiful bride Penny. How many years? 50 at least and you two still look like you could throw the block for Billy Cannon against Ole Miss at Halloween and lead the Tiger Band on the field.

Donnie and Penny (800x677)

This is Donnie with some of the memorabilia. Donnie was #33 in 1958. When he moved to fullback and started with the White Team, he was #44. His junior year 1959, he led the team in tackles.

I have since added the following teams to My Favorites for these reasons:

Oklahoma State University Great niece # 1 and Niece # 1 – Go Pokes

The ONLY orange color I will wear and it was Halloween.

If you do not know who this is and/or where we are, then you don’t know Oklahoma State football.

Then the Good Old Baylor Line with Courtney – The Longhorn

Courtney – I wanted you to have a picture too. It was taken from Darryl K Royal Memorial Stadium. It is hard to be around them now that BU is #3, isn’t it? Hook ‘Em!

But it was The Fighting Texas Aggies who made the offer.

From The University of Texas – Welcome – pay here.

From Texas A&M – Howdy. Here is a loan from the Class of 1933, a teaching assistantship, then a research assistantship and a funded dissertation.

The 12th Man – not just about standing at the football games.

And last and of course, least – Texas Tech. See what happens when one doesn’t read Here’s What I’m Thinking, Little Sister.

Monday, August 10, 2015 – You’ve Got to Be a Football Hero

Monday, August 10, 2015 – You’ve Got to Be a Football Hero

The college football teams have reported for practice. The countdown to kick off begins.

Here is Thelma Watson and Her All Girl Orchestra from 1933 to start the celebration.

Nothing says college football better than a Lawrence Welk looking guy playing the accordion. Wonnerful! Wonnerful! But back to Thelma – I am pretty sure Benny Goodman never wore a bikini top showing his mid drift, and a slinky, Latin looking skirt. Not really sure what Thelma is directing, but I do like her spirit. I think she got her Whip/Nae Nae dance going on.

As you know Here’s What I’m Thinking is about college football. Here are the rules:

I write about college football teams that I like and teams that play teams that I like. So that means these are the teams that I like:

  1. The Fighting Texas Aggies
  2. All of the teams in the SEC in this order:
  3. LSU
  4. All of the rest of the SEC
  5. Big 12 in this order:
    • Tied for 1. – Baylor and Oklahoma State
    • The University of Texas
    • TCU – Unconfirmed rumor – TCU band has added the following song to its playlist – “ Froggie Won A Heisman, he did win, uh, huh, uh, huh…”
    • OU
    • Texas Tech
  1. Teams in The Big 12 that I wish were not in The Big 12
  • Kansas – I thought you played basketball
  • Kansas State
  • West Virginia
  • Iowa State

Tomorrow, there will be pictures of why I love college football. But for now here is one of the reasons.

You were indeed a football hero, Mr. Frank Gifford. RIP.
